Curators Circles: Musical Instruments

The MFA is home to more than 1,200 instruments, including rare examples from Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. An integral part of the MFA’s collection for 100 years, instruments have played an essential role in the Museum’s exhibitions, publications, and musical programming. Join noted authorities and talented musicians to learn about instruments from across history and around the world through exclusive live performances, conversations, and close viewing of our instruments.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
